Incorrect Software Calibration May Cause Fuel Pump to Remain Powered in a Collision

Trailer Hitch Welds May Not Be Sufficient

The weld on the trailer hitch assembly may be insufficient and not support a load. If the hitch weld failed, a load may separate from the vehicle, causing a road hazard. Dealers will repair the trailer hitch. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2008050004. This recall began during June, 2008.

Potential Power Steering Fluid Leak

The hose clamp used to secure the power steering fluid hose at the cooler may not provide sufficient clamping force, resulting in a power steering fluid leak. Loss of power steering fluid can damage the power steering pump and may result in diminished power steering assist, which could lead to a crash. Dealers will replace the power steering hose clamp to correct this concern. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2005 050004.
